Apple Pip Music Load to Number One Spot in Germany

T-Online’s Music Load service has long prided itself on being the number one digital download service in Germany. However Apple has announced that it sold more than the 15.5 million tracks in Germany that Music Load reported to have sold in 2005. One industry source had reported the total number of singles downloads to be 21.1 million which would have given T-Online a massive 73% market share.

For the record Jupiter’s recently pubished music forecasts put the total number of sold a la carte downloads for the German market at apprx 40 million, which looks to be borne out by Apples and T-Online’s reported numbers.
